To delete it do this


Please download OTM
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Please double-click OTM to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the lines in the codebox below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :Processes
    
    :Services
    
    :Reg
    
    :Files
    C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Propietario\Escritorio\testdisk-6.10-WIP\win 
    :Commands
    [purity]
    [emptytemp]
    [Reboot]
  • Return to OTM, right click in the "Paste Instructions for Items to be Moved" window (under the yellow bar) and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Moveit! button.
  • Copy everything in the Results window (under the green bar) to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTM and reboot your PC.

try in command prompt.
go to start > run > type in cmd

then go the directory where your file is sample C:\docs
then in the command prompt issue command: cd docs the hit enter.

this is the final command: del /f /a:h "your filename" hit enter

I hope this helps

If you are already in C:\_OTM
There is no need to type in the CD command.
